Go GREEN with these awesome Everlasting Face Scrubbies! Ditch the cotton balls and face pads when you remove your makeup or apply toner. These scrubbies are quick to work up and are made with soft, cotton yarn that will leave skin clean and without scratching. Toss ’em in the washer with your towel load for fresh and clean face scrubbies!

It may be spring, but many of us work on Christmas projects all throughout the year, so these scrubbies would make excellent gifts any time of year and at Christmas. Add them to a basket with other bath goodies or tie them into a stack to pop in Christmas stockings. Sell them at craft fairs or if you sell bath products include them with a sale. The ideas are endless as to how you can package and gift them.

If you’ve got some leftover cotton yarn in your stash, use it up by quickly whipping out this easy-to-follow pattern. The yarn shown in the photo above is Sugar ‘N Cream cotton yarn. My daughter requested multiple colors and I found the pretty glass dish at Dollar Tree. I found this Glass Dish and Lid that is very similar. This pattern will yield an approximately 3.5″ round face scrubby.

You will need:
Worsted weight cotton yarn
Size I (5.5 mm) crochet hook
Scissors
Tapestry Needle, weaving in ends

Stitches Used:
Magic ring
Ch – chain
Sl st – slip stitch
Sc – single crochet
* – repeat

Instruction:
Create a magic ring with a long tail and work 8 sc into the magic ring. Sl st to join.
Round 1: Ch 1 then *2 sc in each stitch. Do this all the way around. Sl st to join.
Round 2: Ch 1 then *2 sc in the next 2 st then 1 sc in the next. Do this all the way around. Sl st to join.
Round 3 & 4: Ch 1 then *sc in each st. Do this all the way around. Sl st to join.
Round 5: Ch 1 then 2 sc in the next st then 1 sc in the next. Do this all the way around. Sl st to join.

At this point, you can leave it as it or you can add a scalloped round.

Fasten of leaving a long end then weave the ends into the scrubby with a tapestry needle.
